At the SBCV Annual Homecoming, we emphasized the theme: “The Lord is with You.” As part of this focus, we recently held a pastors’ prayer gathering. In Matthew 26:40, Jesus asked, “Could you not watch with me (in prayer) for one hour?” May we continue to strive together in our prayers and praying for one another. As we approach gathering this Lord’s Day, here are ten Bible verses to pray for the church…
